The Southwest Workshop on Mixed Methods Research (SWMMR) is an academic organization that aims to further discussions on the theory and application of mixed methods research in the social sciences.
SWMMR workshops have taken place annually since 2015. The first six were held at the University of New Mexico (2015), the University of Arizona (2016), the University of California-Riverside (2017), the University of California-Santa Cruz (2018), Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (2019), and Northwestern University (2021).
The format involves two days in which junior and senior scholars discuss and debate the theory and practice of mixed methods research in an intimate workshop setting. Panels of junior scholars present original working papers and receive feedback from senior counterparts who have an established record of mixed methods scholarship.
Additionally, the workshops include either a “master class”—an “author-meets-critics” segment devoted to the discussion of a recent or future book-length publication on mixed methods research—or a roundtable discussion on research methods featuring four or five senior scholars.
